Benefits to my students

Many past and current musicians and band members can tell you that the experience builts in lifelong principles of duty, respect, and integrity in their musical performance that transfers over into their personal commitment to succeed in many of life’s ventures. Musicians, band members, and fraternity brothers have a personal sense of duty and dedication when working alone as well as in a cohort with others. Their artistic expression has transcendence over into their daily lives as scholars.

Drums are one of man’s first tools of communication. Drumming is Neolithic. Its players' rhythms are innate and native as is the need for man’s desire to build community and live within the expectations of that core for safety through respect and each member’s fulfillment of their responsibility. A safe core, a responsible core, a respectful core - a drum core.
 

 

Describe the Students

Melrose Elementary School has over 400 scholars, of which 100 percent are economically disadvantaged. Melrose is also a Title 1 school. We have a wide range of learners, all of which would benefit from this project. This project will specifically target 2nd and 3rd grade males who are often left out of most mentoring programs that prefer older children. Club MEL will provide fundamental social skills training and serve a preventive measure against maladaptive behaviors that show up later when interventions arrive too late. 

 

Budget Narrative

Club Mel will need one dozen snare drums with harnesses, drumsticks, and percussion. These sets typically cost around $200 each. We are only requesting funding for five of the snare drums with harnesses.  

 

Items

# Item Cost
1 Snare drums with harness (5) $1,000.00
  Total: $1,000.00
